Gas station robbed at gunpoint in Pittsfield Township
A Sunoco gas station was robbed at gunpoint early this morning, Pittsfield Township police said.
About 12:04 a.m., a man walked into the station's convenience store in the 4000 block of Washtenaw Avenue, pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the cash register, a police news release said.
The man made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was described as black, 6 feet tall and thin. He was wearing a black hooded sweat shirt "with skulls on it," a mask and dark jeans, the release said. Police said he was armed with a blue steel revolver.
The robbery came less than seven hours after a man was arrested after a robbery at the Boggs gas station in the 400 block of North Prospect Road in Ypsilanti.
